The CPUs and Coolers

The boxes are exactly the same as first generation Ryzen and the 2xxxX series processors.

We also find the same high-end packaging that separates the CPU and cooler sections.

The cooler for the 8-core CPU is taller than that of the 2600, and it has an RGB LED ring.

The cooler that comes with the 2700 has a copper core. Both coolers require you to remove the included brackets that come with AM4 motherboards.

CPU packaging is the same as pretty much every single Ryzen 3, 5, or 7 processor.

The tops of the CPUs are very similar to what we have seen before, and the CPUs use solder between the die and the heat spreader.

We find those lovely gold pins on both CPUs' undersides.
